Consent

Thank you for interest in taking the UH System Student Food Security Survey. The purpose of this study is to understand student perceptions and experiences around diet choices and food security. You were selected to participate in this study because you are a student at one of the ten University of Hawaii System campuses.

This study is being done by Elise Dela Cruz-Talbert and Dr. Albie Miles of UH West Oahu. They are working with an administrator from each campus to conduct this study and share the results.  

You may not directly benefit from this research; however, we hope that your participation in the study may inform programs and policies aimed at promoting health and food security among college students. If you agree to take part in this study, you will be asked to complete an online survey.

This survey will ask several questions each about your demographic background, student characteristics, health, and experiences with food. It will take you approximately 10 - 15 minutes to complete.

We believe there are no known risks associated with this research study; however, as with any online related activity the risk of a breach of confidentiality is always possible. To the best of our ability your answers in this study will remain confidential. We will minimize any risks by not collecting any personal health information, decoupling email addresses from the survey data, and securing all access to this data.

Your participation in this study is completely voluntary and you can withdraw at any time. If you have questions about this project or if you have a research-related problem, you may contact the researcher(s), Albie Miles at 808-689-2376 or Elise Dela Cruz-Talbert at 808-689-2389. If you have questions about your rights as a research participant, you may contact the UH Human Studies Program at 808.956.5007 or uhirb@hawaii.edu. Reference Protocol #2018-00192.
